~I forgot about that~
"I swear I didn't mean to."
"Sure. Yeah. Whatever. It's fine."
The instant he heard her say those two words right before she walked away from him, he knew he had to make up for forgetting. If she said it's fine, he's known her long enough to know it is far from fine, in fact, the opposite of fine. He watched her walk through the doorway and cringed as he heard the door slam behind her. "Great."
"What do you mean, he forgot?"
She looked at her friend and sighed. "Well, it was the anniversary of our first date and not technically a wedding anniversary so I shouldn't expect him to remember absolutely everything. He does have a lot on his mind."
"Yes, he does have a lot on his mind. However, he usually remembers all of those little things."
Felicity smiled. "Yes, he does." She loved how he remembered almost everything beginning with the red pen she was chewing on the moment they met. "I'll tell him it's fine. That it is honestly fine and not me saying it's fine with the tone he says I have."
"You do have a tone."
She unlocked the door and as she slowly pushed it open, she noticed the house was dark. "Oliver?"
Felicity thought she smelled food, so she turned on the light in the entry, tossed her keys on the table and let her jacket fall. "Oliver?" She thought she would call out once more, just in case he was there but hadn't heard her the first time. "Are you home? I didn't think there was anything going on tonight. Of course, my phone hasn't been cooperating since I dropped it and you drove over it. Seems the indestructible case I bought was not so indestructible." She walked through the house toward the kitchen and whatever that fantastic smell was, and continued talking. "Look, so I realize the anniversary of our first date might not be a date you would like to remember, considering everything that happened that night. You remember the whole blowing up the restaurant and me being unconscious most of the night. So this time, when I say it's fine, it is fine. Honest. Completely." She gasped.
"I'm sorry I forgot. I usually remember everything, even the little things so it isn't fine." He walked toward her. "It's never fine for me to forget anything about us and our relationship, as strange as it tends to go." Oliver wrapped his arms around Felicity as he reached her and held her close. "I love you, Felicity."
"I love you." She felt tears falling down her cheeks and decided this was the moment she would tell him even if it wasn't how she planned it. Felicity loosened her grip and leaned back a bit so she could see Oliver's face. "The reason why I wanted you to remember this morning is because I had this fantastic brunch planned for us. It's okay, I ate with Caitlin and it really was fantastic. Anyway, during brunch I was going to gaze at you across the table, remind you how we had our first date on this day all those years ago, and tell you that even as disastrous as it turned out that night, it was what led us to this moment in time when we are so close to becoming three."
Oliver tilted his head and furrowed his brows as he tried to understand what she was telling him. "What?"
"I know you're smart enough to figure this out, Oliver."
"Three? Us?" His eyes widened and he smiled from ear to ear. "A baby?" Oliver let go of Felicity and looked down as he gently touched her stomach. "A baby."
She smiled and put her hands on his cheeks. She waited until he brought his gaze to her eyes and softly said, "you are going to be a wonderful father."
"You are going to be a wonderful mother. And I ruined your surprise."
"Ah, but you have obviously created a surprise for me which makes everything better." Felicity laughed, let go of Oliver and wiped her tears. "Don't give me that look. These are tears of joy."
"Complete joy, even after I forgot our anniversary."
"But you'll make up for it, I'm sure."
